The Washington Capitals and New York Rangers meet Tuesday in NHL action at Madison Square Garden.
The Washington Capitals look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 11 games. The Washington Capitals are averaging 3.4 goals per game and are scoring on 24.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Alex Ovechkin leads Washington with 18 goals, Nicklas Backstrom has 23 assists and John Carlson has 88 shots on goal. Defensively, the Washington Capitals are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 81.2 percent of their opponents power plays. Ilya Samsonov has given up 25 goals on 273 shots faced and Vitek Vanecek has allowed 60 goals on 665 shots.
The New York Rangers look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The New York Rangers are averaging 3.1 goals per game and are scoring on 18.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Chris Kreider leads New York with 17 goals, Adam Fox has 26 assists and Mika Zibanejad has 100 shots on goal. Defensively, the New York Rangers are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 84.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Igor Shesterkin has given up 36 goals on 474 shots faced and Alexandar Georgiev has given up 33 goals on 319 shots.
The Capitals are 4-0 in their last 4 road games and 20-8 in their last 28 overall. The Rangers are 5-1 in their last 6 games as a favorite and 1-5 in their last 6 Tuesday games. The under is 4-1 in Capitals last 5 Tuesday games. The over is 5-2 in Rangers last 7 home games. The Capitals are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings. The favorite is 38-16 in the last 54 meetings. The home team is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
The New York Rangers are playing improved hockey over the last couple of weeks and they've won three of the five meetings against the Capitals this season, so there's some value with the home team here. However, I need some plus money in order to fade the Washington Capitals, a club that's won 10 of their last 11 tries and is the most profitable team in the sport. I'm not betting against the Capitals in their current form with a standard line. I have no choice but to side with the Caps here.
